The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

France: it was my 2nd visit after last year, and my impressions haven't changed much, very unfriendly country for a non-French speaking person, I mean I'm in Paris in a metro information center and I have a hard time finding someone who talks half-decent English, and it happens almost every single time I try to speak to anyone, be it a restaurant, info center, train tickets, whatever it is, and this is PARIS FFS, given how much tourism the country gets they should at least be more tourist-friendy, we are not asking for much, English is the de facto language of the world wheather you like it or not, so deal with your snobbery and make life easier on us, we already went the distance and learnd English as a 2nd language!!!!

Germany: first time being here, and only seen Cologne, the moment I stepped with my left leg out of the train and right as I'm carrying my huge bag out of the train door, two guys passionately and lustfully French kissing right in front of the door on the plateform, such a cliche start for the capital of gays given it was the first time I see this scene live in front of my eyes regardless of my frequent travels, this scene has been carved into my brain as you can see oh and German girls are MUCH more beautiful on the average than French girls! this came as a big surprise for me since I imagined it way differently, so many stunning girls everywhere you look! the only face I remember from Paris was a girl I saw next to a family of mine's residence and as I asked about her it turned out she is Saudi with Lebanese blood so yeah it was a surprise since what I had in mind for German girls was freaky tall girls with man-like face and features so this was a big yet pleasant surprise

Switzerland: I wish I could have seen more than just Geneva but time wasn't my friend there, such a peaceful calm country, everyone is super friendly and SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH!!!! even the guy in the little ticket booth on Lake Geneva spoke better English that the best accent I could hear in France, and yes he was 100% Swiss I asked him, shameful stuff for the Frenchies...



OMG if I'm gonna answer every question like this I'll never finish gonna try to give shorter ones from now on -____-

*takes his time thinking*

hard question to answer, recently Lake Geneva was fab on the day, I love clouds and love to see water in cloudy days so it was amazing experience being there, but I'll go with Hakone the beautiful town in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, the greeny mountains, the active volcanic spots you see while riding the ropeway, the hot springs and the view of Mt. Fuji in Lake Ashi, add to that the beautiful rain it poured there, not too heavy to annoy not too light to omit, heavenly place

lol I guess you have an idea about that one, but I'd go with photography, although I don't necessarily think I'm "really" good at it, I think I have a good sense of what a good picture consists of, I never took any courses or even read any books or articles on it, but I go with my own sense and instincts and I like the outcomes most of the time, however no one appreciates it around me mainly because my sister is really talented in this sense, I mean she sold some of her drawings for $5,000 each, so she is thought of as the artist of the family, taking all the limelight from poor me

good question! I can't answer this from an Arabic point of view, that's way too generalized and I have no idea, but I can speak about the Saudi eductation, it's approached with extreme condemnation and as a despicable act of assault on Muslims's holy lands, and to show the difference between the Muslim "rightful" or moral wars in contrast to the barbarian ways of the Crusades, therefore the term Crusaders is taken very negatively and it's usually the way AlQaeda and Bin Laden addresses the Christian Western world which summons hostile and negative feelings in the subconscious of Arabs and Muslims in general, there is naturally alot of emphasize on the Arab victories in these wars and the heroics of Saladin and the decisive Battle of Hattin.

not sure if that's the answer you wanted, you can be more specific if it's too general an answer

locally it's still about the Jeddah floods, on the national level Saudia is involved in the Yemeni civil war now after attacks on it's border and after Houthis took control of small regions inside the borders, and the tense is further increasing between Iran and Saudia these days, and between Sunna and Shiia in general, same old same old, fucked up region -____-

English I suppose, easy to practice it everywhere and it's taught as the 2nd langauge in school, even though it's completely differnt from a linguistic point of view.

lol he won't play that long I'll get more busy pursuing my medical career I suppose so I won't watch it as much as I do now, so it's all for the best, I'm thankful I've had the time to watch him when he was in his peak years

if Davydenko managed to beat him, I'll cheer for him to go all the way, but it's extremely doubtful, on the other side of the draw I'll cheer for Roddick to go all the way hopefully we get another Fed vs. Roddick final

Why you would ever feel the need to warn me in such a way is beyond me, I'm sure.

Yeah, I know... Their English accent is probably the worst I've ever heard. And if you don't speak French, you might as well not cross the border in the first place.
France would be such a great country...if only they didn't speak French.

What a welcoming brigade experience.
Actually, funny thing, I had the exact same thought when I was in France. We're so bombarded with this premise that French women are the most gorgeous types in all the world, each one a mystical urban goddess for us provincials to bow to , so I was really surprised to see that that just wasn't true. But women in Paris are far more "normal" than what I expected. Which was a relief.

Yep, they all speak really good English, that was my experience too. And the men are so gorgeous omg. I'm sure you didn't notice that fact though.
Or did you?

That sounds so beautiful. I envy you for seeing Japan.
( at bold - too much time in Cologne, yes? Imma find a way to work this into the title of this thread. )

I like them, you have a good sense of how to get a "clean" photo.

No, no, that was a great answer, exactly what I wanted to know. And I'm so glad you mentioned Saladin because that was going to be in my next batch of questions.

A couple hours ago I guess, it was during the Rafa-Muzz match he apparently went into the Rafa forum with some not so nice comments.

Yup Jase too. He got banned because he wanted the Rafa fans to die.

For heaven's sake please don't! Europe is a shit hole full of racists. Especially France and Germany. You'll have it incredibly tough here since you're a believing muslim. By the way, what ethnicity do you belong to? Not asking from a racist perspective, obviously.
